IMG_9237 copyRufus is a fresh face who brings a refreshing sound to R&B music.

He is a musician with a genuine desire to bridge the gap between the youth and elders of today with his music being the catalyst for change and the voice of positivity.

_dsc1326In the tradition of many renowned R&B musicians, Rufus began singing with the church at the age of 6.

Born in Toronto, ON but raised in a West Indian Caribbean household he was exposed to and highly influenced by many of the music legends of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Throughout his high school years he continued to sculpt his vocal and performance talents as the lead singer in a cover band he also began experimenting in song writing, creating a library of life chronicles.

He found it very therapeutic to channel personal and challenging life experiences and turn them into heartfelt lyrics.

In early 2014 Rufus will release his debut album “Growing Pains” a collection of R&B tunes taking listeners through an intimate life journey of the experiences from being a young boy to becoming a man.

Lyrically there is a story everyone can relate too and sonically there are sounds to please everyone’s ears.
